Justin Hunter was in court today and was granted bond of $25,000.  I haven't seen anything yet that says he has posted that, but it is just a matter of time before he does.  Gabriella DeLuca of Virginia Beach provided these updates this afternooon:

I have to admit, this blows my mind a little bit.  Hunter plays football with absolutely no aggression but beats the crap out of a dude at a bar.  It will be interesting to see what the Titans decide to do with Hunter.  They will probably just wait until everything gets sorted out and stand behind whatever the NFL decides to do to him.
